    Seabirds (also known as marine birds) are birds that are adapted to life within the marine environment. While seabirds vary greatly in lifestyle, behaviour and physiology, they often exhibit striking convergent evolution, as the same environmental problems and feeding niches have resulted in similar adaptations. The first seabirds evolved in the Cretaceous period, and modern seabird families. Ecological Role of Marine Mammal Killer Whales in the North Pacific Ocean Surrounding Alaska.

Marine birds and marine mammals are important components of the North Pacific ecosystem. The amount of food consumed by marine birds and mammals can be considerable. In some areas, the prey of marine birds and mammals are important commercial species or are important prey for harvested species, so here can be conflictst.

Driftnet fisheries present a real danger to some. Spatial Ecology of Marine Top Predators in the North Pacific: Tools for Integrating across Datasets and Identifying High Use Areas Expert Group: AP-MBM P:. The importance of the subarctic gyres of the North Pacific Ocean to marine birds and mammals is poorly known because of a paucity of data spanning appropriate scales of time and space.

The little information that is available indicates the western subarctic gyre (WSAG) is more productive than the eastern subarctic gyre (ESAG).Cited by: – Precipitous declines in abundance of multiple marine mammal species in the north Pacific since s (northern fur seal, harbor seal, sea otter) – Incidental mortality from fisheries and intentional harvesting (s s) initial cause, but not continued decline File Size: 5MB.

The geographic distribution of studies within the database reflects the distribution of these four marine mammal species ().Harbor seals range along the entire Northeast Pacific from central Baja California to the end of the Aleutian Island chain (Caretta et al., ).Consequently, we found diet studies for harbor seals in every one of the six geographic cells in our by: 9.

Data were collected to document the at-sea distribution and abundance of marine birds and mammals, and were conducted using standard strip width transect protocols (Gould and Forsell ).

The gulls are a family of birds that live mainly at sea, either along the shore, or out in the ocean itself. Worldwide, there are more than species of birds that live either partially or exclusively at sea, and these are generally known as "seabirds.”.

Over the past decade, there have been dramatic changes in this region in sea ice cover and in Bering Strait inflow, and it is now in the path of transpolar shipping and destinational ship traffic, including vessels supporting Arctic offshore oil and gas development and tourism, all of which are anticipated to Cited by: Predation is a biological interaction where one organism, the predator, kills and eats another organism, its is one of a family of common feeding behaviours that includes parasitism and micropredation (which usually do not kill the host) and parasitoidism (which always does, eventually).

It is distinct from scavenging on dead prey, though many predators also scavenge; it overlaps with. Invasive mammals have irreversibly altered ecosystems of Hawai‘i and other tropical Pacific islands in numerous cases through novel herbivory, predation, and diseases, thereby causing the disproportionate extinction of flora and fauna that occur nowhere else on Earth.

The control and eradication of invasive mammals is the single most.You are studying the feeding habits of a group of four closely related bird species.

You observe that all four species feed on insects. However, you notice that the species do not feed at the same time of day: one species feeds most actively at dawn, another during the middle of the day, another at dusk, and the last species feeds at night.Predation by Marine Mammals on Squids of the Eastern North Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea.
